On the Edge of Our Seats

This past week we've been seeing a lot more of this than is usual:

Yep, one of E.'s teeth has finally decided to grace us with its presence. But it's being a total drama queen and has decided to keep us writhing in suspense for over a week. In the mean time, E. is congested and drooly, cries at the drop of a hat (or if you take too long getting him a Cheerio), and has trouble napping (but thankfully he still sleeps okay at night).

All and all, I guess it's not too bad. But it's been going on since last Friday. Just how long does this whole thing normally take? When I feel inside his mouth it seems sometimes like the tooth is very close to the surface but at other times it feels like it has sunk down some. Do teeth actually do that? This tooth is such a tease!

On a brighter note, N.'s grandpa is arriving tonight to stay with us for a week and a half while he attends a conference in town. It's always fun to have Grandpa around and I'm hoping to get some good pictures of E. with his great-grandpa.
